Legend is by Ripline (Hotline/Cavan/Rambo) and out of the wonderful producing mare Licata (Don Schufro), is tall and stands at 17.3H.
Legend was bred by the innovative and forward thinking Oak Hill Ranch, LA- known for producing over 200 foals, breeding several licensed stallions, and was a pioneer with embryo transfers. They are well known throughout the equine community for producing exceptionally tempered and talented horses. Legend was one of the last youngsters to come out of OHR and our second one with such lovely qualities from the same facility.
Because of his size his training has been a bit slower to allow his body to develop more. He possesses a stellar temperament, has been super easy to start and has a great work ethic. He has been with us since he was 2 and we have spent a lot of time doing ground work, liberty training, taken him on all the field trips such as the beach, other farms, local parks, etc. He hacks, trailers and is an overall well adjusted citizen. As a coming 5 yr old he is schooling all the Training/First level movements. He has not gone down the centerline yet as he was still a bit green for that this past summer, but he should be ready this spring. He is working on walk-canter-walks and counter canter (took a little longer given his size).
Legend does have “shivers” a neuro/muscular condition that causes involuntary muscle twitches. His is predominantly in the front limbs. I have a lot of experience with this and he has been managed thus far well with a few modalities/specialized training/consultations. There are a few other options for treatments and am happy to discuss all of his condition. Legend is in otherwise excellent health, soundness, and is shod all (4). We have used some of the liberty cues to help him with his muscle twitches and has been successful. Legend also will come pick you up at the mounting block, comes when you whistle and is always a willing participant and has made excellent progress in his training & ride ability. He prefers to live out and is currently out with 3 other geldings. He is the kind of guy with a massive heart that absolutely will have you at hello. Looking for his next partner who will adore him the way we have. $55K
